Stayed at Starfish mid March. Amazing and more. We didn't want to leave. Great hosts. Kimy and Terry are the best. Already looking forward to next year. Definitely listen to Kimy in terms of what beach to visit and what to do. Had beaches to ourselves most of the time there. Definitely need a car for most things. Recommend hearty breakfast in cottage. Look for local roadside restaurants and "take-aways" for lunch and dinner. Great meals with local flair. For budgeting purposes, groceries are a little higher than prices in the US. And in restaurants food is also a little pricier than we expected, drinks are $10-12. For dinner ask Kimy where to get the seafood, probably caught that day. Remember to investigate every unnamed road because chances are, there is a great beach at its end. Harbour Island is worth half a day, if that. Check out Bahama coffee rosters, few blocks up from the harbour, run by some really great people. If you want to really slow down, this is your vacation.

Thank you for allowing us to guide you on your adventures while visiting our beautiful island and home. We were so happy you found the bonefish you were searching for! You have now been dubbed "The Bone Doctor" If you hang around long enough...... you will get a nickname here. We think it is quite fitting.
Glad to know you enjoyed cooking for yourselves in the Starfish and gathering local products such as fresh fish and other necessities nearby. We love to show you how to save a bit here and there with the local cuisine as well as finer dining should you so desire. There is a little bit for everyone here in Eleuthera.
We look forward to your next visit. Please know you are always welcome here with us. Hugs to you.... Norm and Jen. We loved having you! Sunshine & Love from Gregory Town, Eleuthera! Kimy, Terry & Morocco.

A perfect place to stay to experience the REAL BAHAMAS! This little cottage is fully equipped for cooking and comfort. Beautiful grounds and a fantastic view towards the rear of the property. Very safe and well located. I hope to return one day. I would recommend this property and the staff are helpful and friendly!

My Husband and I stayed in the Seahorse cottage for 2 weeks. It was everything and more than we could ever imagine! We had such a wonderfully relaxing time in this beautiful cottage, in the amazing surroundings of the cove, Gregory Town and the rest of Eleuthera. Kimy and Terry were fantastic hosts so helpful, laid back and knowledgeable of the area. They were always around if we needed them but never intrusive. The cottage was very tastefully decorated and had everything we needed from utensils to beach towels. We loved using the kayaks to explore the coast, one day we even had turtles bobbing along beside us! We also had such a great time snorkelling most days with so much to see it was a great experience. We explored many different beaches, by either hitch hiking or when we rented a car. I have to say they were all beautiful, clear water and lovely sand - we very rarely did we ever have to share the beach with anyone!! We hitched hiked (which we would never usually do but is so expectable here, locals in fact just pull over and offer a ride if they see you walking!) to one of our favourite beaches Gaulding Cay many times, it is only a 5-8 minute ride from Gregory town. We hired a car from Wallace, who was great and very reasonable; and travelled to each end of the island. We also had a day on Harbour Island - this is also a must. Its a short ferry ride for just $5. We ate as well as at the cottage, our favourites are The Laughing Lizard, Daddy Joes and the Sunset. We bought many types of fish from surfer Pete too to have at the cottage too. It was the most amazing time, our friends at home are now very jealous of our tans!! We would like to thank Kimy and Terry again for be such a great help,, we will see you again soon!! xx

The "Edge of the World" Cottages are a rare find. Besides the amazing property and view, the cottages are very well provisioned and comfortable. The property is so well maintained. The landscape is worthy of a botanical garden. Kimy and Terry are so knowledgeable about the area, they never seem to grow tired of describing Eleuthera. They make it so easy. It is almost hard to share this because it's the type of place You would want to stay a secret destination.

“Exactly Right For Budget-Conscious Laid Back Traveler”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was my second time on the island of Eleuthera. The first I stayed elsewhere, and while anywhere it's 60+ degrees during winter is generally a-ok by me, the overall warmth and friendliness of that proprietor left a little to be wanted. While I didn't feel the need to return to my past accommodations, I did want to do more exploration of the beaches and general beauty of the island. All the reviews below and all the future reviews above will all say the same thing in a million ways: it's a special spot that once you've found you're just going to want to go back.

Kimy and Terry are very friendly and helpful and are clearly excited to share their beautiful perch with folks looking for escape, peace, relaxation etc. During the six days I was there Kimy embarked on a number of home improvement projects...from laying the foundation for a garden shed to upgrading the porch chairs from plastic to wood, she was bubbling with ideas of how to make the whole of the property even more enjoyable than it already was.

I stayed in Tamarind Cottage and it's perfect for 1-2 people. The small kitchen is compact, but you can still put together a delightful meal of fresh seafood and tomatoes from the property's volunteer plants along the shore.

It should be said that if you're not one for a bit of DIY in your vacation, this may not be the best fit for you. You'll still have to make your own bed, no one's going to be delivering cocktails directly to you, the shower's water pressure can be a little waffley. And head's up: make sure you line up a car well in advance of your arrival on the island...you're going to want one.

But if you are looking for a beautiful spot, friendly hosts and a nice home-base for adventures around the island, this is definitely a place to seek out.

We are so happy you came to visit us and escape your busy life / chilly weather. You were an absolute delight to watch each day. Big smile on your happy face...as you were off on your beach adventures, gathering tomatoes, other goodies from the yard for preparation of your daily gourmet meals. Thank you for being our "test guest" with the new chairs. We had so much fun designing them for you and the others that will "perch" on our decks and patios. Please know you are always welcome here with us. You are part of our little island family now. .

My husband and I love to stay at the Starfish.. it is truly paradise found. Kimy and Terry are fabulous hosts. I would recommend any of Kimy's properties. They have kayaks and a lovely view of "heaven" from their deck on the water. The grounds are as lovely as Kimy too!
There are many adventures to be had on Eleuthera. :)
